Daily Deviation 29/3-2016

Vortex galaxy sphere by fairyfrog

A Daily Deviation!?!
Oh WOW.. Thank you so much!!! :squee:
Making this available for full size download as a thank you to the community.


I started making these and really practicing a little while back; there are some really sad experiments from three years ago which I gave up and left the idea sit and simmer as something I wouldn't be able to do. >.<

Recently I took up the design again and studied, practiced and learned; just as a dear, very inspiring and kind friend got into the hospital. Margit was my oldest friend in both senses. We met when I was seven and we've been friends for 28 years.
Working on these I thought a lot about her and dedicated the entire galaxy collection her.

She was/is a proper star child.

Margit passed away age 88 on the 27'th, and getting this DD award for the glasswork she inspired, mere two days later, means a lot.

:heart:


Thank you. Thank you thank you thank you! :tighthug: :

Jewelry , glass and metal are my great passions in life!
I do not only want a piece of jewelry to be an item but part of a statement, expression, memory or identity. A powerful symbol in life and society.

I believe that nothing material follow us in life for so long as a loved piece of jewelry. Many keep their tattered childhood pieces and pass them along to their own children, or re-forge them into more adult jewelry to be a part of their life still. Even in death, some wish to keep their beloved pieces on to be buried with, the most common example being the wedding ring.

Jewelry is important. It is a finely tuned system of social codes, and that very jewelry language is what I love to play with and try to find the right expression and convey emotions!



I live in Sweden and happily do commissions. Preferably in metal or glass, but some special items in mixed media or textile happens once in a while as well ;)

I have a very small and humble ETSY page, feel free to browse! www.etsy.com/shop/SarahBurchil…

I do sell them, although the first ones will be put up for sale at an IRL market here in Stockholm, Sweden.
I'll get my internet Etsy business going again soon I hope - it's been down for a while due to me "getting a real job" that's been absolutely wrecking.
Looks like it's over now though, so I can focus on what's important in life again. ;)
